Accomplishment: Mary worked over time to organize a visit of our external advisory board. She was responsible for pulling together all of the materials to be distributed to the board including bio's, photos, and review materials, collating them and sending them out to the board. (She was here past 11 p.m. one night to complete that.) On the night before the visit she was here until after 10 fielding emails and ensuring there were no last minute travel issues. Then she was back at work by 7:30 the next morning for the visit itself. All went smoothly.
Benefit to the Hajim School: This was our first board visit in four years with a newly reconstituted board. I believe we made an excellent and positive impression on the board members, who included alums working in biomedical industry, representatives from local biomedical companies and representatives of other biomedical engineering programs.
